You either love him or hate him. When it comes to Tom Brady, there doesn’t seem to be any middle ground. The arguably most well-known quarterback in the National Football League won the Most Valuable Player award for Super Bowl XLIX, but Brady doesn’t seem to think he deserves it.
As time wound down on the clock at the end of the game, everyone on the planet knows by now that the Seattle Seahawks made the extremely strange call to pass the ball from inside the five yard line. The call was strange because Seattle has on their roster one of the best running backs in the game today, Marshawn Lynch. For reasons that sports fans will continue to debate for decades to come, Russell Wilson threw the ball instead of handing it off, and that pass was intercepted by Malcolm Butler.
In being the winning quarterback for Super Bowl XLIX, Tom Brady was made the MVP and given and brand new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado for his efforts. However, appearing yesterday on WEEI’s “Dennis and Callahan” radio show, Brady talked about giving Malcolm Butler the truck, since it was his interception that sealed a victory for the Patriots.
“I would love to give him [Malcolm Butler] the truck. I would love to make that happen. I’m going to figure out how to make that work.”
Malcolm Butler only signed with the New England Patriots last May, and he makes the NFL’s minimum salary of $420,000 per year. At present, Forbes magazine estimates Tom Brady’s yearly income between playing football and football-related endorsements in the tens of millions of dollars. So it only seems fair that mega-jock Tom hands the keys of the brand new Chevy Colorado over to the guy that won the Super Bowl for his team.

Multiple Super Bowl winner, multi-millionaire, husband to supermodel Gisele Bündchen, father to two kids… and the Super Bowl XLIX MVP award. (It’s nice to see something work out for Tom Brady for once!)
